The Puyallup Police Department in Washington state posted this notice on their Facebook page:
     Due to local cases of #COVID-19, PPD is asking all criminal activities and nefarious behavior to cease. We appreciate your anticipated cooperation in halting crime & thank all criminals in advance. We will certainly let you know when you can resume your normal criminal behavior.
